Terms & Conditions

Our practice aims to provide dental care of a consistent quality, for all patients. We have management systems to help us, which define each practice member’s responsibilities when looking after you.

In proposing treatment we will take account of your own wishes. We will explain options, where appropriate, and costs, so that you can make an informed choice. We will always explain what we are doing.

We will do all we can to look after your general health. We will ask you about your general health, and about any medicines being taken. This helps us to treat you safely. We keep all information about you confidential.

Contamination control is essential to the safety of our patients. Every practice member receives training in practice systems for contamination control. Wherever possible single use disposables are used. Reusable equipment is sterilised by autoclave. We will always be polite and courteous in our dealings with you and treat you with respect at all times. We expect the same consideration from our patients in return. We reserve the right to refuse to treat any patient who is abusive or discourteous to any member of staff.

Our normal payment procedure is to ask you to pay a proportion of the cost of your treatment at each visit. The final payment being due on your last appointment. We are happy to give estimates of the total cost of a course of treatment before that treatment begins, and will keep you informed of any changes as treatment proceeds. Patients can choose to pay by either cash, debit or credit card. We no longer accept personal cheques.

Please give as much notice as possible if you have to cancel an appointment in an emergency. Please call on 01256 584485. For a genuine emergency cancellation, there will be no charge. With other cancellations, we will try to fill your allocated time with another patient but reserve the right to charge ( at a rate of half our normal hourly fee ) if we are unable to do so.

Whenever possible, please contact us about emergencies during normal surgery hours. If you need to be seen the same day, please get in touch as early in the day as possible. In the case of an emergency out of hours, phone the number below, and you will be put in touch with our dedicated paging service where you can leave a message for the on call dentist. If treatment is necessary, we will do our best to arrange it within 24 hours. Emergency Telephone (01256) 584485

It is only through hearing from you that we can help and improve our service. Please mention your concerns in the first instance to your dentist.

Orthodontic Braces

Am I suitable for orthodontics?

At Hook Dental, Gareth Morris offers cosmetically focused orthodontic treatments designed to quickly and affordably correct common problems of crooked, gappy or twisted teeth. Typically treatment times are around six months and focus on treating the front six upper or lower teeth or both arches together. This technique is not suitable for children or more comprehensive orthodontic problems where we would recommend treatment by a specialist orthodontist. We can offer our adult patients three choices of brace systems. We hope that one of them will be suitable and tick all the right boxes for you.

Fixed

Our fixed braces from Cfast use crystal clear brackets and white coloured wires to gently reposition your teeth in around six months. This system provides accurate control of tooth position and is very unobtrusive.

Clear Smile Aligners

Our crystal clear plastic aligners straighten your front teeth effectively without anyone knowing you are even wearing them. They are comfortable to wear and are not fixed permanently to your teeth although they have to be worn all the time except while eating.

Inman Aligners

Our fast braces from Inman Aligner can transform your front top and bottom teeth in a matter of weeks. The big advantage of the Inman Aligner is that it is typically worn for 18 hours a day giving you some valuable time off from treatment where social and working engagements are important.

Free initial consultation

You are invited to visit us at Hook Dental for an initial free consultation to assess your suitability for orthodontic treatment. At this consultation we will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment so that you can make an informed decision about your orthodontic care.

Should you wish to proceed further this consultation will be followed up with a full case assessment, which costs £150. This thorough and detailed appointment involves creating models, taking precise measurements, x-rays and photographic records. If you are suitable for brace treatment at Hook Dental and decide to proceed, the £150 charge will be deducted from the cost of your treatment.

As part of your treatment it may be necessary to carefully adjust the shape of some of your teeth. Our analysis will ensure that any adjustment will not affect the long-term health of your teeth. After treatment all patients will require some form of long-term retention to ensure their teeth do not revert back to their original position. We recommend wherever possible fitting a permanent bonded wire to the back surface of the teeth usually between all six front teeth to fix their position. Sometimes we may use a removable retainer instead of or as well as the bonded retainer which must be worn every night. These first retainers are included in the cost of your treatment, but may need to be repaired or replaced over time.

What if I’m not suitable?

Everyone is different and if you aren’t suitable for orthodontics at Hook Dental, we promise to do all we can to find an alternative treatment to achieve your smile desires or refer you on for treatment with a specialist orthodontist

What does cosmetically focused orthodontics cost?

If our assessments show that you are suitable for short-term cosmetically focused orthodontics, we will agree a cost estimate before we start treatment. As a guide our patients who have had this type of treatment have typical paid in the region of £1.900 for a single arch treatment (upper or lower teeth) and £2,900 for both arches when carried out simultaneously.
